You’ve probably heard of the phrase plus-size when stopping by at clothing stores or browsing online. You might have even come across a curve category whilst scrolling through your phone or on TV. Either way these modelling divisions mean the same and have been making waves and moving mountains in the industry over the past few years.
Changes over the years
In the 1950s, the average dress size in the UK was 12 amongst the female population. Fast-forward 70 years, it’s now size 16. Whatever the reason for this gradual alteration is, the fact is, it’s there, and industries are understanding this change.
Positive social media influence
People’s mindsets have been at the heart of this change – they’ve embraced and empowered themselves by going against what defines beauty. Social media platforms have helped to push this message out into the world and with more and more influencers and celebrities speaking up against body shaming, the more we’ve been reading and watching the positive shift.
Many famous faces have spoken against being scrutinised for their weight or weight gain and have nourished their followers/supporters and those who have been reading around the hot topic with positive messages of being you and not allowing others to define you just because of the shape and size of your body. This has sparked discussions around the trending issue, and doesn’t look set to be cast aside or ignored.
